Create VM larger then 2TB's in Windows 2012 Hyper-V
Posted on 2013-10-28
We have installed Windows 2012 R2, with GPT and now have a D: drive that is 8TB's, and installed the Hyper-V role.
Now we would like to install a vm guest 2008R2 with a 4TB partition, how do I proceed to this, when I begin it says I can install up to a 64TB parition, but under the Windows install it then breaks into two 2TB partitions, we would like to have a single partition.
The way I installed the host was with a flash drive that I made with Rufus (GPT, Fat32), however I tried to remove the drive letter, make offline, and their is no offline option to mount to hyper-v.
Thanks for your time.
